Listen To Daft Punks 1997 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

We hadn’t seen any whack Daft Punk clickbait for the last few weeks so when the opportunity rose to post up a real morsel of robot news in the form of their classic and punchy 1997 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, it was a no brainer.

Although it’s been covered over the years it really doesn’t take much convincing to collectively enjoy the house goodness from the French blokes behind the masks, more so when you really soak up the deep tracklisting, Pete Tongs nostalgic Essential Mix intro and decent mixing.

Old heads can appreciate cuts from Paul Johnson (Summer Heat!!!), Armand Van Helden, I:Cube, Cajmere and of course a heavy dose of Daft Punk as well as one-half of the duo Thomas Bangalter’s own wares.

It’s a far cry from a recent spree of glossy marketing activation be it t-shirts, belts, that leaked Jay-Z and Daft Punk collaboration that was never meant to be seen or heard and also the failed attempt at a show in a US national park.

Thankfully you can right the wrong with an hour and fifty seven minutes of pounding goodness.
